Have you tried the Impossible Burger? They're legit shockingly good facsimile. I don't know if it fully mimics beef but if they told me it was something like Elk or Buffalo or something similarly exotic I wouldn't question whether or not it was meat.

Land of the Worcs would be an incredible band name...

Oh, I'm a carnivore till the end; perhaps because I'd like to preserve what I've learned until the end. Rather, I just truly respect people who are, and love cooking meatless meals as much as those made from tasty animal bits! And the Impossible site has me sold already. Cosmonauts! Flowers! Tasty looking food!..

Wow, and they actually have a location only an hour away. I'll have to give them a try!

I always feel a deep and spiritual kinship with flowers, especially of the angry variety.
This strip in particular... It's everything I think and feel, every moment of every day.

(Honestly, though, lab-grown meat has the potential to be really interesting!)

I tried a recipe I've had kicking around in my bookmarks for a little bit! Kimchi Pork Pot Roast

Image

3.5 lbs of pork butt.
1/4 cup mirin, 1/2 cup soy sauce
1 cup brown sugar, 14 oz jar of kimchi

Instant pot recipe, but you could use a slowcooker just fine. Just salted and seared the pork in the instant pot, then removed the meat and deglazed the pot with the mirin and soy sauce. Threw the pork back in, covered in sugar and kimchi, and then sealed the pot up to pressure cook for 70 minutes. I used slightly less than the cup of sugar the recipe had, but it still came out slightly too far on the sweet side for us; the garlic mashed potatoes helped to balance that out, but I think making this recipe again, I'd cut the sugar down to maybe a quarter cup or remove it entirely, and I'd probably go with an extra hot kimchi rather than the standard I used since the kimchi was a fairly muted flavor profile in the finished product. But it's super tender stewed pork with cabbage and that's basically impossible to go wrong with on top of mashed taters. (The brussel sprouts were just halved, salted and peppered, and browned in olive oil in the cast iron skillet which then took a trip into the 400 degree oven for about ten minutes once they were brown and crispy on the bottom, and turned out much better than my usual "just throw them in the fucking roasting pan for like twenty minutes in the oven i guess" because a tiny bit of extra effort actually does go a long way.)

I put some of the leftover roast in my super spicy instant ramen (dry style, not soup style) and A+ would recommend.

Can anyone recommend a recipe that needs like a gallon of raw milk? All I've got is 'mash a literal ton of potatoes'.

That's more helpful than you might expect, milk pie isn't a thing over here to the degree that I'd never even remotely heard of it, so I'll definitely go for a couple of those. Looks like something that'll freeze well too, which is a definite bonus.

I'd never heard of a milk pie either. I think it's specifically a Wisconsin/dairy country idea ("I have so much leftover milk that I guess I'll try dumping it in a pie crust and baking it"). But now I want to make one.

Also like... a lot of mashed potatoes does sound good as fuck though.

Alrighty, started with a Mexican/US style with chocolate orange milk because that looked like the easiest recipe. Checking out the Greek ruffled style next. Feeling a lot better about our dairy situation. I don't think these have set yet. Also I am genetically incapable of cooking anything without generating cartoon splashes and hand prints over at least eight square meters plus everyone's clothing.

I also had never heard of milk pie, despite being cousins to Wisconsin. Is it just like any other creme pie? (Having never made any sort of creme pie).

Also all you guys talking about mashed potatoes made me have to make shepherd's pie last night. I could have taken a picture but instead we just ate the whole thing.

I think tomorrow I'm going to bake a batch of digestive biscuits (Silver's Special Recipe (no they don't taste just like McVitties)). I've found people are reluctant to try them if I call them "digestives" so I'll just say "cookie."
